Breast implants in breast reconstruction or augmentation do not last for a life time, but are long-term surgical implants that can easily hold for 15-20 years. The filling of the implant is also highly important in terms of resistance and risks involved. Hence, the silicone implants, due to the new-generation gel fill are more resistant to puncture, but can change in shape in some cases and any case of leakage is difficult to detect due to the gel's thicker composition. The saline-filled implants are safer, as you can notice an eventual deflation in a few hours' time and the saline solution is easily absorbed by the body without bringing any physical harm to it. However, there are measures to prevent any such complications, and the specialists at Renew Skin & Health Clinic will schedule you for periodic MRIs to ensure that your implants are still intact and do not become harmful for your body and health.
